Designer's Note: The pincushion shown here was stitched by Bobchi, my Ukrainian grandmother, over 20 years ago as a small token of love for an in-law. Last month, when my aunt went to her sewing basket to repair a button hole, she came across her well-loved and well-used pincushion and shared this photo in our family group chat. I know Bobchi would be so pleased to see that her small gift is still in use today -- not just holding pins, but bringing smiles and reminders of the simple power of love and care for others. 

All proceeds from this pattern will be donated to support the resettlement of Ukrainian refugees. In addition 10% of all sales at from May 14-May 31 will be donated. As of May 2022, these funds will be directed to Mama TopKnot's cousins and their children, who are currently in the process of traveling from Europe to safety in the United States. Future sales of this pattern may be directed to or another relief organization at the discretion of the designer. 

If you are able, I also encourage you to donate to one of the many amazing organizations providing assistance to Ukrainian residents and refugees (@rescueorg is a great place to start, visit  Visit for more info). Or, if you would like to give directly to support my Ukrainian relatives, please email me at for more information.
